Ususally, Tramp is able to detect it. During login, it waits for some
known strings like password request, or shell prompt. If a login
fails, it doesn't see any string it is able to handle.

If you enter `M-x tramp-bug', some instructions are given how to get
more information from Tramp. Examining the buffers mentioned there
might point you to the problem (I bet on the shell prompt); otherwise
you should send the prepared email.
